Police have arrested two protesters during an anti-government demonstration outside the home of war cabinet minister Benny Gantz.

The two detainees are suspected of violating public order, with protesters lighting bonfires and setting off flares.

According to Hebrew media reports, one of the protesters was arrested after he attacked police forces and the other for trying to break through a security barrier that had been set up next to the demonstration.

The protesters are calling for the release of over 100 hostages held by terror groups in Gaza since October 7 along with the replacement of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government. They are also calling on Gantz to resign from the emergency government that his National Unity party joined in the days after Hamas’s October 7 massacre in southern Israel.
